After Gilbert, Arizona's Perry High School reportedly punished students for wearing "MAGA" clothing on "USA Day," journalists and parents descended on school grounds.
One reporter, Cameron Ridle, assumed the worst of Trump supporters.
Trump supporters and other concerned members of the local community gathered in front of the high school to protest the treatment of the conservative students, whose “political signage” caused “concern for student safety,” according to the school’s principal.
Ridle, who is also a reporter for 3TV’s Good Morning Arizona and CBS 5 This Morning according to AZFamily, can be heard talking and laughing with another man as they approached the protest, likely unaware that a Facebook live video had already begun recording, capturing the audio from part of their conversation.
The video appears to have since been removed from AZFamily’s Facebook page, but the hot mic portion of the video was copied and later uploaded to social media.
“Let’s say I walk right down the sidewalk next to them — maybe they’ll call me a n*gger,” Ridle can be heard saying to another man in the video, at which point, the two men begin laughing.
AZFamily responded to Breitbart News' request for comment with a brief statement, "At Arizona’s Family our expectation is that all employees will treat others with respect. We are aware of the situation and are conducting an investigation."
